Films United ran the successful “I support HERA” campaign in support of the European Space Agency’s Hera Mission.
In 2016, the European Space Agency asked Films United to help promote the (then called) “Asteroid Impact Mission” (aka AIM) which did not receive funding during the 2016 ministerial council.
In 2019 the mission was up for funding again, this time under the name Hera Mission. We created the “I Support Hera” campaign which was supported by over 1,700 famous scientists, celebrities and planetary defense experts.
In November 2019, the mission was successfully funded!
Hayden Geraghty is nine years old and has autism. He is the European Space Agency‘s youngest Planetary Defence Ambassador.
We worked with him and his parents on the “I Support Hera” campaign.
